    Wheel bearings come in a variety of designs. Many early designs, were made to be serviceable. Today most are either bolt-in or integral in design. Neither requires routine maintenance, but when they fail, learning the reason is important. Symptoms of a bad wheel bearing When a wheel bearing fails, the most common symptom is a roaring noise that increases with […]

    This technical file offers a summary of cages for anti-friction bearings which are on FAGs standard production program. It also shows classification of standard cages to their bearing series, rows and sizes. The cage as important part for bearing function as it holds the rolling elements apart in task to avoid their contact holds the rolling elements in equal distances […]

    Flange mounted bearings are used when the shaft axis is perpendicular to the bearing mounting surface.  They incorporate a sealed bearing that is preassembled into a flanged housing.  The housing contains a precision ground surface perpendicular to the bearing axis and two, three or four mounting holes, depending on the style.  The bearing can be unbolted and removed, which makes […]

      four-point-contact ball bearing The four-point-contact ball bearing is a single row angular contact bearings designed to handle two-directional axial loading. These bearings require a minimum amount of space and can be custom designed to meet our customer’s unique loading parameters. And the four-point-contact ball bearings can carry either pure axial loading or combined loading provided the axial component is […]

      Self-aligning ball bearing this type of ball bearing is recommended when alignment of the shaft and housing is difficult and the shaft may flex. The outer ring has a spherical raceway and its center of curvature coincides with that of the bearing; therefore, the axis of the inner ring, balls and cage can deflect to some extent around the […]

    Thrust bearings have rolling elements which primarily support the axial loads of rotating devices. Several styles of bearings are available in thrust configurations. Whereas radial-load bearings locate ball or roller races on the opposing inner and outer bearing rings, most thrust bearings have raceways machined into the faces of mating rings. This arrangement supports a load that is parallel to […]

        Ball and roller bearings are available with different types of shields and seals. These are commonly referred to as closures. Closures can extend bearing life by preventing contaminants from reaching the critical surfaces inside the bearing, and they help retain the lubricant in the bearing. Different types of closures may be supplied on the same bearing. Special designs […]

    V-RING SEAL  The function of a v ring seal, or v ring, is to snap over a rotating shaft and act as a centrifugal seal acting against the bearing face and throwing dirt and contaminants away from the bearing area, which will probably contain the primary sealing elements. V seals are not designed to seal against fluids or pressure differentials in […]

    Bearings are used to support the rotating components (like shafts) and bear the load which the rotating components carry. Principally, it has four major components: Outer ring: This fit tightly inside the outer structure which is generally not moving e.g. Pump/Motor Casing Inner ring: This ring fits tightly on the shaft and rotates with it. Balls: These are the components […]

    Bearing installation is as important as bearing design and cleanliness. Improper installation can damage the bearing assembly and can cause brinelling of the bearing, which can result in bearing vibration, noise, and reduced life. listed below are some tips that will help prevent incorrect installation and extend bearing life   Do not remove the bearing from its packaging until you […]
